Why would you choose to do a tour instead of just venturing out to see new places by yourself?
There’s quite a few good reasons actually! Doing a tour can often be cheaper than doing it yourself, and almost always much more time efficient. Tour guides know all the little special places and times of year that different spots will be busy and when the best times to visit are. Even if you did plan to go and venture out into the wilderness yourself, it’s a great idea to do a tour first and get an idea of the areas from people who know them from experience. You would be surprised what you can learn from a tour, and what a great stepping stone it is to even better, more informed adventures!
A good example is the distance between destinations. Often we will visit locations that are many kilometres from any public transport and then they are very far between each of the different places we visit. It would be technically impossible to do our tour in a day by train, or local bus, and without the knowledge and experience we have you would really waste a lot of time not knowing where you are going and just testing out tracks that you think sound nice.
Almost everyone that travels on tours are there to have a nice relaxing fun day and meet a few nice people. Everyone has a bit of trepidation when meeting and traveling with groups and so usually everyone is pleasantly surprised by the fun they have and the new friends they may make! The Blue Mountains are certainly a magical place and you should come and visit with us as soon as you can!
